- David obtained a bachelor's in Mathematics and Molecular Genetics, followed by a master's in Statistics at The Ohio State University before pursuing a PhD in Statistics at the University of Washington. There, he studied multivariate analysis of tensor-formatted datasets under Peter Hoff. Following his PhD, he worked with Matthew Stephens at the University of Chicago as a postdoctoral scholar, studying RNA-seq differential expression analysis in the presence of unobserved batch effects. He started his position at American University in 2018. There, he has developed a growing interest in polyploid genetics, where there are a lot of potential uses of hierarchical modeling and multivariate analysis.
